Dug Down Deep {Joshua Harris}

Dug Down Deep
Building Your Life on Truths That Last
(Joshua Harris)

I didn't really know what to expect as I had never read anything by this author before (better known for his book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye"). I was pleasantly surprised.

In Bible college, I read theology book after theology book.  The Bible became academia.  I learned for a grade.  I studied for the test.  Head knowledge.  Lots of learning with little application.  I wish this would have been the first book I read.  There are so many good resources for solid biblical theology, but none of that matters without this book.  Knowledge of God without application of why it matters to the ins and outs of your life is pointless--that is why this book is necessary.

Bottom line: I've been challenged to base my choices on truth about God and what He is doing in the world...God reveals truth about Himself in His Word, not for the sake of knowledge, but for the sake of relationship with us.

So what are you going to do about it?

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
